[They] are just that: human ideas.
[They] are just that: human ideas.
Okay, human sexual dimorphism. No matter which time and culture you look at, there are two sexes. If we ever venture out into space and live on different planets, there will still only be humans that produce eggs and humans that produce sperm. You can look in a microscope and verify which one is which with any given cell. You can dig up a skeleton and tell if it’s male or female. A simple blood panel will tell you which sex you’re looking at. Sex is unchanging and verifiable.
How about gender roles? Well, it turns out any given culture tends to have differing ideas about what things are appropriate for each sex depending on which time you catch them. And that just with one culture. Differing cultures can (and do) have drastically differing ideas about this. If we go live in outer spaces, who even knows what roles we’ll relegate to which sex? There’s no quantitative test to ascertain what these roles might be. The expectations you put on the sexes are changing and completely unverifiable.
So, idk, which one seems like an objective fact and which seems like a human idea?

…they do realize pretty much all cheer squads are already co-ed? Having a guy with more upper body strength is useful for some lifts. (Source: my sister competed in cheer from middle school to graduation.) This comparison is not even remotely the same thing as a guy being on the softball or girl’s basketball team.

Uh, from all of this it sounds like your brother is the one taking things too seriously. He’s the one freaking out that you didn’t use the “preferred pronouns.”
Out of curiosity, how many TIMs does your brother know in real life and how does that compare to his perception of them from the internet?
Tims: you can’t even tell we’re trans! Me, quickly scrolling through my phone while half paying attention: that’s a dude.

Librarian: J.K. Rowling’s Magical Thinking is Censorship by [deleted] in GenderCritical

Librarian here. Our profession is, unfortunately, overrun with the woke. Not even ten years ago, the rule was, “your politics and religion are left at the door because you are to be an impartial resource for people.” In the last few years it’s shifted to, “you need to be a voice for the oppressed, share a common political ideology, and make those politics impact every facet of your work.” Likewise, “libraries should contain things that offend everyone. Intellectual freedom is a right” has become “don’t you dare include or promote someone whose opinions differ from the narrative we’re pushing.”
It’s not only personally frustrating, but professionally maddening.

You got banned for this?? Good lord. I reported several accounts of transwomen making graphic rape threats to women and the most that ever happened is a comment being deleted. But, to the left, it’s only violence if you’re not on their side. It’s maddening.

OUTRAGEOUS - GC speakers harassed by BLM activists in London - Trans, Inc. hijacking other good causes! by BEB in GenderCritical
Here’s the About section from the BLM website: https://blacklivesmatter.com/what-we-believe/
Unsurprisingly, they recognize gender identity as a category worth protecting and don’t acknowledge sex. There’s a fair bit to about the trans community and one half-assed sentence about women.
Bonus: LGB people are a “sexual identity” and “queer,” which are two things that immediately make me not trust an organization.

You’re bold and I like you.
Here are my small rebellions.
1. Refusing to use the LGBTQ or LGBT acronyms. I know it’s petty, but I think it’s important that we separate ourselves from TQ as much as possible. I work for a large library system and I’m quietly working to rebrand all of our pride materials as individual entities.
2. Asking people to not call me queer. This has, oddly enough, come up a few times with my coworkers. I’m politely letting people know that I don’t like being called a slur and prefer lesbian or homosexual. It’s started some conversations. I think people have walked away with the understanding that LGB people aren’t a monolith and we shouldn’t thoughtlessly use blanket terms.
3. Using “homosexual,” “same-sex attracted,” or “same-sex couple” as often as I can when it’s pertinent. (You know, without making it weird.) I want to reiterate that lesbians are homosexuals as much as I can.
4. Being vocally against cancel culture to the people in my life. Let’s be real, this has gotten so bad because people are afraid of being canceled. Supporting free speech and expression (even when I personally disagree) is something worth standing up for.
5. Refusing to call relationships between between transwomen and women lesbian. (Again, petty.) I don’t roll out calling them straight, but I will not validate them by letting them use our word. (Same for the gay equivalent.) This actually comes up a bunch in my life and I use partner or spouse to describe SOs for these cases. I just say relationship, marriage, or couple too. I don’t add a modifier.
6. Starting the tough conversations with people I’m close to. I’ve found the best way to do this is let the conversation come up naturally and making sure I stay calm and composed no matter what happens. I try not to sound incredibly authoritative, but ask questions to make people think. (Going for a Socratic approach.) So far, I haven’t lost anyone. My gf and I had a big fight about one issue, but we’ve talked through it.
Things that seem to have gotten through to people:
A. If lesbian can mean attracted to females and feminine presenting males, what should women who are exclusively same-sex attracted call ourselves?
B. Sex and gender aren’t the same thing. (When someone freaks out that I’ve said male or female. It’s kind of cheap, but playing into their language without directly confronting them seems to work.)
C. Language is meant to describe, not be an ideal to belong to. If I can’t describe myself, what does that even mean?
